I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-pilc-asym-03.txt



A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Performance Implications of Link Characteristics Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: TCP Performance Implications of Network Asymmetry
	Author(s)	: H. Balakrishnan, V. Padmanabhan et al.
	Filename	: draft-ietf-pilc-asym-03.txt

This document describes TCP performance problems that arise because 
of asymmetric effects. These problems arise in several access 
networks, including bandwidth-asymmetric networks and packet radio 
networks, for different underlying reasons. However, the end result 
on TCP performance is the same in both cases: performance often 
degrades significantly because of imperfection and variability in 
the ACK feedback from the receiver to the sender.

In the body type:

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
